Davidson entered the league with considerable expectations based on his college production. Things did not go according to plan in Atlanta, however, and he was released midway through his third season with the team. That move set up a deal with the 49ers last spring, but Davidson was among San Francisco’s final roster cuts.

The Auburn product was retained via the practice squad, but he did not see any regular season game action with the 49ers. He signed to the Titans’ taxi squad in October not long after being released. That led to a number of gameday elevations and time spent on Tennessee’s 53-man roster. As a result, Davidson appeared in five games last season, making three starts along the way.

Logging a career-high 48% snap share, the 25-year-old posted 10 tackles (including two for loss) and one sack during his time in Tennessee. That production has resulted in a post-draft agreement keeping him in the fold through at least training camp. Davidson will look to carve out a roster spot this summer amongst the Titans’ other options along the defensive front.

Tennessee has Jeffery Simmons, Sebastian Joseph-Day and rookie T’Vondre Sweat in place as D-linemen set to occupy the defensive interior. Along the edge, the team has Harold Landry and Arden Key in place as starters. Davidson will look to earn a rotational role alongside Rashad Weaver; doing so could set him up for a full-time campaign on the team’s 53-man roster.
